Looking at the heavens: Photographer captures perfectly symmetrical ceilings

Gazing on these perfectly symmetrical ceilings in religious buildings around the world is almost like looking at the heavens themselves.

The beauty of the precise patterns carved high above the camera has been captured in a series of stunning images.

Colorful light streaming through the stained-glass windows of some churches and mosques helps to highlight the intricacies of the decorations. (Caters News)
